The chlorine in bleach is sodium hypochlorite which is the same chemical which is added in very small amounts to streilise water. I would not recommend adding chlorine bleach to a bath as children with eczema often cannot tolerate the extra chlorine in swimming pools and it tends to aggravate dryness of the skin. It will keep the skin free of infection and this may help a small proportion of eczema sufferers who have a tendency to develop infections of their skin.
